My Course Goals

Rhetorical Knowledge

Understand the role of a variety of technologies/media in accessing, retrieving, managing, and communicating information

Use appropriate technologies to organize, present, and communicate information to address a range of audiences, purposes, and genres

Writing instructions can be a simple yet complicated task. A lot of it has to do with point of view. What to one person is easy to comprehend could be difficult to another.

alignment scheme has a strong influence on the overall impression of the page's message (ch5).

People are more comfortable with balanced designs and are more likely to stick around to read the page.(Ch4)

overall effect of applying repetition is that your pages will be more visually interesting, organized, unified, & consistent (ch6).

Flow is greatly enhanced by the simultaneous usage of the principle of repetition. (ch7)

Critical Thinking

Integrate previously held beliefs, assumptions, and knowledge with new information and the ideas of others to accomplish a specific purpose within a context

Use information, writing, and reading for inquiry, learning, thinking, and communicating

The principle of contrast is one of easiest, quickest ways to give your reader a visual treat and draw attention to the page (Ch3).



Be aware that it usually takes multiple drafts to create and complete a successful text

Use appropriate technologies to manage data and information collected or generated for future use


Visual Hierarchy

The size contrast between the images naturally leads the viewer's eyes from the turtle down to the smaller hare and therefore into the text (Ch3).

Page designs function better and are more readable if visual elements are intellectually grouped and their visual weights are balanced. (ch4)

Alignment occurs when visual elements line up with other visual elements on the page (ch5).

Designers often use visual principles such as figure/ground, proximity, closure, continuation, & similarity (ch 6).


Knowledge of Conventions

Develop knowledge of genre conventions ranging from structure and paragraphing to tone and mechanics

Understand and apply legal and ethical uses of information and technology including copyright and intellectual property

Contrast occurs when 2 or more elements look dramatically different from one another (Ch3).

Do not do things by half-measures. With contrast, it is often all or nothing (Ch3).

A balance of design is one in which the visual weights of all of the elements are equally dispersed throughout the layout (Ch4).

The pages will seem more organized when you visually connect elements on the page ( ch5).

There are a few different ways to align an ad. Basic text alignments include: Flush left, flush right, centered, & justified. Advance alignment are: runaround, asymmetric, & concrete (ch5).

There are 2 halves to the principle of flow: verbal & visual.(Ch 7)

My Main Goal

My goal for this class is to learn how to use different websites to publish information about nutrition. A lot of people spend more hours online than any other activity.
